Giants unveil new Century Red uniforms to honor 100th anniversary season



The Giants unveiled a ‘Century Red’ 100th anniversary commemorative uniform on Thursday that the team said it will wear for “up to” two games this season.

The uniform looks like the Montreal Canadiens’ jersey and a red version of the University of Michigan’s helmet with tan pants. Each element honors the franchise’s history and past.

“It’s a throwback to the 1920s, 1930s when they were out there just getting grimy,” captain and middle linebacker Bobby Okereke said in a team release. “It’s a testament to all the guys who played before. They paved the way for us to play this great game.”

The red jersey, with a thick blue stripe and white numbers, traces back to 1933. The Giants lost to the Chicago Bears at Wrigley Field in the first-ever NFL Championship Game but got revenge by capturing the title in a rematch one year later.

The tan pants, with red and blue striped socks, are a throwback to the originals from the Giants’ inaugural 1925 season. The pants were worn in the Giants’ third season in 1927, when they won their first NFL championship by allowing a total of 20 points in 13 games.

The winged helmet was used from 1937 to 1947, including during the Giants’ 1938 championship season.

All of the team’s 2024 jerseys will feature the team’s “100 Seasons” patch, with a background shield inspired by the shape of the Polo Grounds, the team’s first home in 1925.
